White House Urges House GOP To 'Get Themselves In Order' Amid Speaker Vote Chaos: 'It Doesn't Look Good'

Grand News Network | October 18, 2023

The White House has called for an end to the turmoil in the House as Republicans struggle to elect a Speaker. This comes after their nominee, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), failed to secure the position.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Tuesday addressed the ongoing issue, The Hill reported. "It does not look good that we're seeing chaos in Congress, in the House specifically, by Republicans. It doesn't. It doesn't look good, it doesn't help. That's why we keep saying that Republicans in the House need to… get themselves in order,” She said.

The position of Speaker has remained vacant since the former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) was removed earlier this month. Jordan lost 20 GOP votes in the first ballot, and a second vote planned for the same day was canceled. A second Speakership vote is slated for Wednesday at 11 a.m.
